The Mariana Islands host many corporate headquarters for businesses around globe, but they also sport one of the largest collections of freight harbors and transshipment warehouses on Earth and beyond. Ships ply their waters from the East African Coast, Australia, and even the Americas with cargo meant for the Jayapura, Colombo, and Panama City Elevators. Many Russian corporations even move cargo through on its way to their Severnyi Polyus Elevator. And the Mariana Islands are happy to give those corporations shipping items to the Singapore Elevator paperwork that proves to the Mainland Chinese that they never came anywhere near the Mariana Islands, for a modest paperwork fee of course. Ships flying nearly every flag on Earth pass through the Mariana Islands on a daily basis, making them a serious amount of money in total. Business is their business, and everybody who gives them money is welcomed with a smile.
